We want for your help with some of the work that Great Oakland Public
Schools is taking on this summer.
There's something for everyone - we have opportunities for people who like to get out and meet fellow Oaklanders, those who like to do computer-based work, and those who are interested in getting on the phone to help survey our neighbors as part of our listening campaign.
Can you help? Sign up today for one of the following opportunities now!
Laurel Street Fair Volunteers
Saturday, August 11th - Volunteers will distribute flyers and talk to people about GO and the work we do to ensure that all Oakland children have access to quality public schools. We will provide all of the supplies, materials, and talking points you will need to successfully represent GO. The fair takes place on MacArthur between 35th and 38th Avenues in Oakland's Laurel Neighborhood.
Listening Campaign Phone Banking
Our summer listening campaign is in full swing! We're calling Oaklanders to ask them open-ended questions on their thoughts on Oakland education. This will help us learn what our community wants from our schools and help Oaklanders know about Great Oakland Public Schools so that they can get involved. We're learning and growing our network at the same time! Phone banks happen at the GO office, and dinner is provided. Phone banks are from 5:30 PM - 8 PM.
Listening Campaign Data Entry
Volunteers will help enter the information we're learning on our listening campaign when we go door-to-door and do phone-banking. This can be done at the GO office, or from home with your own computer.
We look forward to seeing all of you this summer!
